  • To support reading from any location through Apache VFS each file is loaded into memory (one at a time). Make sure to allocate enough memory to allow this.

  • Long values can be de-serialized to Dates if they are EPOC: milliseconds since 1970-01-01 00:00:00.000

  • Parquet Binary fields are considered to be Hop Strings but you can read them as Hop Binary.

  • All input values are passed to the output

  • INT96 is converted to the Hop Binary data type.
